Overview

Immortal Beloved is a film about the turbulent life and times of Beethoven. Throughout the film, highlights from his vast canon are featured, and those pieces of music were collected for the soundtrack recording. In essence, the soundtrack is "The Best of Beethoven" -- it features all of the melodies that have worked their way into popular consciousness. Naturally, this isn't the place to find challenging, inventive interpretations of Beethoven's standards, nor is it even the place to find definitive readings of these works. Instead, it is a sampler, designed to whet the appetite of a neophyte Beethoven fan; in that sense, Immortal Beloved works very well. However, if you have a deep knowledge of the composer, pass this one by.
